Quantum physics of atoms, molecules, solids, nuclei, and particles ( edition) | Open LibraryIt covers just as much of the theory and maths as needed to understand these properties of the quantum system. The book takes a practical, illustrative approach rather than an abstract, mathematical treatment of the concepts that govern quantum systems. As the authors themselves say in the preface, they focus more on the applications of the theory rather than on the theory itself. The book explains the concepts through the many experiments that were conducted to prove them, and through descriptions of natural phenomena that demonstrates them. The authors express the hope that once the student understands how quantum physics actually works in the real world they would be motivated to go deeper into the theory. Quantum theory developed gradually out of investigations into some puzzling behavior of matter at its most basic level, at the levels of atoms and particles. These puzzles could not properly be explained by the theories of classical physics.

For a stationary process, the initial and final condition are the same. The appendices are very informative and are a support system for the reader. They explain how the natural world is governed by these theories at the smallest levels.Details if other :. Archived from the original on October 7. In short, it was valid only at high frequencies and underestimated the radiance at low frequencies. Quahtum

The descriptions are in macroscopic terms, expressed in ordinary quabtum, and Albert Einstein developed a theory for it. Robert Andrews Millikan studied the photoelectric effect experimentally. Quantum mechanics is necessary to understanding and designing such electronic devices! It tackles the problem of teaching quantum physics in a great manner.
It even exists in the simple light switch?

Quantum mechanics QM ; also known as quantum physics , quantum theory , the wave mechanical model , or matrix mechanics , including quantum field theory , is a fundamental theory in physics which describes nature at the smallest — including atomic and subatomic — scales. Classical physics , the description of physics existing before the formulation of the theory of relativity and of quantum mechanics, describes nature at ordinary macroscopic scale. Most theories in classical physics can be derived from quantum mechanics as an approximation valid at large macroscopic scale. Quantum mechanics gradually arose from theories to explain observations which could not be reconciled with classical physics, such as Max Planck 's solution in to the black-body radiation problem, and from the correspondence between energy and frequency in Albert Einstein 's paper which explained the photoelectric effect. The modern theory is formulated in various specially developed mathematical formalisms. In one of them, a mathematical function, the wave function , provides information about the probability amplitude of energy, momentum, and other physical properties of a particle. Scientific inquiry into the wave nature of light began in the 17th and 18th centuries, when scientists such as Robert Hooke , Christiaan Huygens and Leonhard Euler proposed a wave theory of light based on experimental observations.
